Webinar: Reading for the Rhetorical Situation


Reading for the rhetorical situation requires students to go much deeper than just identifying the main ideas. Students need to focus simultaneously on the author’s purpose, the message/text, the context for writing, and the audience it is addressing. It is not just what the text says, but how the text says it. This webinar will review the elements of the rhetorical situation and provide some strategies for helping students increase their rhetorical reading comprehension.

Webinar: “E”ngineering in the STEM Classroom


The “E” in STEM can sometimes be scary for teachers as they begin to embrace STEM teaching and learning, but fear not! Engineering is all around us and in practically everything we do and the best part… students are naturally born engineers!  The National Research Council’s Framework for K-12 Science Education states, “Any science education that focuses predominately on the detailed products of scientific labor – the facts of science – without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.” In this webinar we’ll look at how students should learn how science is used through the engineering design process, and how they come to appreciate the distinctions and relationships between engineering, technology and applications of science.

We will discuss ways to make grammar study a part of the writing process, and not just ‘rules’ that are applied after the text is written, and encourage students to see how the grammatical choices we make represent relationships between writers and readers. Grades 6-12

Webinar: Developing Authentic Science Fair Research and Projects – grades 5-8


Participation in a science fair can be a very rewarding experience. It is the culmination of conducting research or testing designs and provides valuable feedback to students as they continue on in their STEM pursuits. Integrating the Science & Engineering Practices, found in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, can help engage students in scientific investigations while increasing conceptual understanding. In this 1-hour webinar we’ll look at interdisciplinary strategies to help build instruction that moves students beyond memorization, recall, and a basic level of knowledge to a much higher cognitive demand of problem solvers and critical thinkers where science fair projects are an authentic outcome that enhances student learning.

Webinar:  High School Progression Series – Part 3: Functions


The AZCCRS-Mathematics standards were developed using research-based learning progressions. Progressions capitalize on how mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills develop over time. Thus, the standards are designed around coherent progressions from grade to grade and represent a cohesive body of mathematical knowledge. During this webinar we will: 
• Consider content from previous grades that supports development of conceptual understanding of content in the Functions conceptual category in high school. 
• Explore the impact of student understanding of the definition of a function on their ability to analyze, interpret, and build functions. 
• Develop an understanding of the learning progression document for the Functions conceptual category in high school. 

This webinar is presented with connections to parts 1-2.  Participants may find gaps in information if they have not attended the previous webinars.

Webinar: Text Complexity


In this one hour web-in-hour overview of text complexity participants will examine the three components of text complexity; quantitative measures, qualitative measures and the reader and task considerations. Participants will work with the Text Analysis Worksheet and begin to understand the criteria and descriptors for determining if text is readily accessible, moderately complex or very complex. Participants will also learn some scaffolds for assisting readers as they begin to read more complex texts.

The intended audience is Teachers, Coaches, and Specialists. It would be helpful to attend this webinar with a partner to facilitate discussion.

Webinar:   High School Progression Series – Part 4: Transformations


The AZCCRS-Mathematics standards were developed using research-based learning progressions. Progressions capitalize on how mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills develop over time. Thus, the standards are designed around coherent progressions from grade to grade and represent a cohesive body of mathematical knowledge. During this webinar we will: 
• Consider content from previous grades that supports the development of conceptual understanding of congruence in the Geometry conceptual category in high school. 
• Develop an understanding of how the criteria for triangle congruence follows from the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motion. This webinar is presented with connections to parts 1-3.  Participants may find gaps in information if they have not attended the previous webinars.

Webinar: Writing in Math Grades K-5


This webinar will serve as an overview of the full-day professional development offered at ADE. We will examine the benefits and purposes for writing in class and how it supports mathematical understanding. We will incorporate ELA Writing Standards 2, 5, and 10 in our math classroom writing to support integration across subjects. Please prepare to attend the webinar with a partner or team to aid in discussion questions during the webinar.

 Webinar: Evaluating Instructional Materials for alignment to the AZCCRS –EQuIP ELA


An introduction to the EQuIP Rubric (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products.) The Tri-State Collaborative (comprised of educational leaders from Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island) developed criterion-based rubrics and review processes to evaluate the quality of lessons and units intended to address the Common Core State Standards for ELA/Literacy and Mathematics. The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the rubric and its purposes: to provide clear, descriptive criteria for common core lessons/ units, to provide meaningful, constructive feedback to developers of lessons/units, identify lessons that can serve as models, and to provide a protocol for collegial review.  We will also cover the four dimensions and the criteria in each.

Webinar: Grammar Basics


This 1.5 hour webinar is designed to build content knowledge of the eight parts of speech. Each part of speech will be defined with examples and illustrations provided. Background knowledge of the eight parts of speech is necessary in order to teach students the grammar and mechanics outlined in the Language standard of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards.

Webinar: Reading for the Rhetorical Situation


Reading for the rhetorical situation requires students to go much deeper than just identifying the main ideas.  Students need to focus simultaneously on the author’s purpose, the message/text, the context for writing, and the audience it is addressing.  It is not just what the text says, but how the text says it.  This webinar will review the elements of the rhetorical situation and provide some strategies for helping students increase their rhetorical reading comprehension.

Webinar: Developing Authentic Science Fair Research and Projects – Grades 5-8


Participation in a science fair can be a very rewarding experience. It is the culmination of conducting research or testing designs and provides valuable feedback to students as they continue on in their STEM pursuits. Integrating the Science & Engineering Practices, found in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, can help engage students in scientific investigations while increasing conceptual understanding. In this 1-hour webinar we’ll look at interdisciplinary strategies to help build instruction that moves students beyond memorization, recall, and a basic level of knowledge to a much higher cognitive demand of problem solvers and critical thinkers where science fair projects are an authentic outcome that enhances student learning.
